Happy Mother's day to all mothers here!

Went to my regular haunt near my parents place to shoot, before my dinner time. Manage to shoot some interesting insects.

FZ10+Raynox 250, F8, 1/60s (unless stated otherwise), ISO50, 2 diffuse flash, handheld

Equipment set up: http://www.tchuanye.smugmug.com/gallery/271702

#1: Funny insect with translucent Abdomen (1/50s)


#2: Green Globin Fly!


#3:Fierce Wasp


#4: Rubbish Removal......Coachroach over a dead JS


#5: Top view of Yellow Ladybird


These were done using 2 pics. Clone sharp part of the rear part to the pic with sharp eyes to create overall greater DOF.

#6: Yellow Ladybird.


#7: With Red BG

Excellent series Tan. Love the head-on wasp and ladybird shots. The insect in shot 1 is an ichneumon wasp, similar to one posted by vaiboy the other day.

There are quite a few species in the ichneumon family Tan, I`ll have a browse around and see if i can ID the particular species for you.

This is vaiboys thread with another of the same family, you`ll see the likeness.....

I saw that thread, but I can't see the similiarities. #1 has a brown/black body, and translucent abdomen....so not sure if its the same.

I love #7, the dark background and the angle really make the ladybird pop!

I think #1 is a braconid wasp, they are similar to the ichneumon but typically smaller. Here's a female braconid that I shot yesturday. Around here the males are all black and the femles are red and black. The females have an ovipositor that looks like a stinger, but they seem to be harmless.

Closest I can find Tan, the translucent abdomen has got me beat though....maybe vaiboys suggestion is closer to it....
